The aircraft sustained substantial damage. Two passengers received serious injuries. There was some fire which extinguished itself.

Probable Cause:

The cause of the accident has been attributed to incapability of the aircraft to stop because of non-availability of thrust reversers, inboard flight spoilers, ground spoilers and inboard brakes.
